The GMC or Chevrolet Suburban goes back all the way to 1930's when
every manufacturer used the term "Suburban" as a reference to
station wagon design. GM actually used Carry All as the model
designation. It actually was not until 1988 that General Motors was
awarded the trademark "Suburban". The fifth generation of Suburban
was built from 1960-1966. They offered several firsts in the
industry including independent front suspension and a lower riding
height to give the feeling of a more car like comfortable ride. The
rarest of the bunch which was not offered after 1966 was the One
Ton C30 which was a 10-foot panel truck.
This particular Suburban C30 1-ton has been 100% nut and bolt
restored with all receipts, picture documentation and
correspondence. This consignor has owned this car since 1987 and
has meticulously converted this beast in to the beauty it is today.
The restoration was mostly completed by Randy Church Restorations
out of St. Charles, MI and completed in 2006 at the tune of $50,000
at almost 900 Hours. The car then again was repainted in the
gorgeous color you see here of Stealth Blue in 2015 for another
$15,000. Those numbers don't even come close to hitting on the rest
of the money that has been put in to it over the years including
the professional interior done by Barretts in Traverse City, MI.
The engine was rebuilt along with the transmission and is out of a
later model truck producing what is said to be about 300 HP. It is
mated to a 5-speed manual. This truck looks better than new by a
long shot. It has upgraded seats and gauges, starts perfectly, runs
and drives very smooth with nothing leaking or smoking. All of this
done to a vehicle that is next to impossible to find let alone was
a decent C30 to begin with. This GMC comes absolutely turn key with
every stitch of restoration documentation and would be impossible
to duplicate for the money asking.
